40th Anniversary of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – the Nunc Dimittus

In celebration of Geoffrey Burgon’s 78th birthday last week we are presenting the Nunc Dimittus which he wrote for John Irvin’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Television series for the BBC in 1979 making this year it’s 40th anniversary. This work is as popular today as it was then when it received an Ivor Novello Award for the best music score.
